The stakes are high: Unlike the private sector where damage from cyberattacks is usually financial, the federal sector has much more to lose because of national security. As government organizations move their applications from legacy mainframes to private and public clouds, security and cost management are top of mind.
To help manage national cybersecurity threats, SAIC, a systems integrator dedicated to helping government clients modernize IT systems and manage cybersecurity risks, uses VMware vCloud Suite for its own private cloud operations as customer zero and for key government customers. Based on a VMware Validated Design, SAIC’s enterprise cloud services leverage the hybrid cloud management capabilities of VMware vRealize Suite to speed infrastructure delivery, and use micro-segmentation with VMware NSX Data Center to help keep government networks more secure. In the near future, SAIC will use VMware Cloud on AWS to give customers an easy way to rapidly extend on-premises VMware environments to public cloud.
